A South Dakota man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for robbing banks in Iowa and Nebraska.
Karlis Baisden of Vermillion, S.D., received the prison term earlier this week in Sioux City. He's also been ordered to pay $19,000 in restitution.
The 25-year-old pleaded guilty last year to an attempted bank robbery in Lawton, Iowa, and robbing a bank in Fordyce, Neb.
Baisden was arrested in April 2011 for his connection to the Lawton bank robbery. Officials later seized handwritten letters from Baisden's home where he admitted to robbing the bank in Fordye in December 2010. The letters also included his plans to rob the Lawton bank.
